Project Rubric (100 points):

The content grade will be worth 50% of the project grade. The organization grade will be

worth 25% of the project grade. The style grade will be worth 25% of the project grade.

Each of the three categories will be awarded a percentage grade, and the three percentage

grades will be combined according to the weights above. The final percentage indicates

what percent of the total of 145 points is to be awarded.

Example of How the Final Project Rubric Will Be Used:

Suppose a student earns 85% on content, 90% on organization, and 75% on style. Then the

student’s final project grade is calculated as follows: 0.50*85% + 0.25*90% + 0.25*75% =

83.75%. The student then earns 0.8375*100 = 84 points.
